In November and December 2013, British Council officially introduced in Vietnam the revolutionary new English language testing and assessment service Aptis. This is an innovative new tool, designed to help organisations to reach more people, connect with them, and raise standards of English. Aptis is designed to be flexible, adaptable and accessible, meaning more people can be assessed quickly, affordably and with minimum fuss. Developed by testing experts and based on the latest research in assessment, Aptis is the smarter way to evaluate English reading, writing, listening and speaking.
A series of launch events were organized to reflect the diverse markets that Aptis will appeal to. Through the partnership with HR Link, the most popular and active HR online forum in Vietnam, Aptis was introduced to more than 2,000 CEOs and HR persons though the council’s sponsorship and presentation at “Vietnam HR Day 2013” in November and HR Community Year-end Offline Events in December.
Targeting the education sector, a mini-workshop namely ‘Aptis briefing educators’ presented the new testing solution to 25 Deans of English language faculties and assessment experts from key universities in Vietnam.
In the government sector, British Council Vietnam, as a sponsor, introduced about Aptis in the ‘Innovation of human resource management in public administration, opportunities and challenges’ conference. This is an annual event hosted by Ministry of Home Affairs, attracting 100 human resource experts and scholars from ministries, universities and provincial departments of home affairs in Vietnam.
Following the launch, there has been significant interest in Aptis from the education sector to benchmark student and teacher capacity (a key governmental priority to 2020), and from private sector companies wanting to recruit new staff and train their talents. Aptis adds a new dimension to the British Council’s testing and assessment services, and the team in Vietnam are looking forward to providing more assessment solutions to more of our partners.
